CONOR MCGREGOR could only laugh when he was asked to pick a winner of Floyd Mayweather’s upcoming exhibition bout with Deji.
Boxing legend Mayweather, 45, returns to the ring on November 13 in a shock fight against Deji, 25, commonly known as KSI's brother.
Money recently boxed in his fourth exhibition bout since retiring from the professional game in 2017, where he beat McGregor in ten rounds in Las Vegas.
He knocked out Japanese MMA star Mikuru Asakura, 30, in two rounds after receiving some punishment himself.
Prior to that, Mayweather has had three exhibition bouts, not officially sanctioned or affecting his historic 50-0 record.
SunSport first revealed talks for a blockbuster rematch with McGregor and how the rivals were negotiating the terms of a deal.
